Roanoke- $2.36/g, up 3.1 cents per gallon from last week's $2.33/g. Florida's average Monday was up two cents on the week to $2.55 per gallon, while Naples saw the same two cent jump to $2.60.

Wilk said that one of his legislative goals in 2018 will be to repeal SB 1 - the 12-cents-per-gallon "gas tax" that went into effect in California three months ago.

Within the last week gas has risen and are expected to rise due to the "typical spring fever", according to Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy.

Last week, Idaho gas prices rose by 16 cents to an average of $2.72 per gallon, AAA said in a press release.

Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg said Sunday the increase was driven primarily by rising crude oil prices.

The start of spring has come with a spring in gas prices across the US and especially in Virginia.

That's up 13 cents from a week ago when it stood at $2.43. Most consumers, he said, don't bat an eye until the average price hits $3 per gallon. "As March wraps up, gas prices are going out like a small lion, but there may be a larger lion looming in the weeks ahead".

Gas prices in Santa Clarita are still on the rise as refineries prepare to switch to their "summer blend" of gasoline in April. "The surge at the pump is by no means over just yet".

Anchorage- $2.98/g, up 3.9 cents per gallon from last week's $2.95/g.

As of of Monday, March 26, the national gas price average was $2.61, up six cents from the week before, up nine cents from a month before, and 33 cents higher than this time past year.
